What do we do?
The Bible Society of Ghana exists to ensure that the vision of making Bibles affordable and available is achieved.
While focusing on our vision, it is also needful to develop effective and meaningful programmes using all forms of media through which we can attain our set objectives and facilitate Bible distribution and usage in churches and among individuals.
In pursuit of our mission, we do the following: Translations, Distribution, Programmes and Fundraising.
The goal of BSG is to reach every home with a Bible in a local language they can read and understand. Currently, the Bible has been translated into 8 major Ghanaian languages. We are working on others, while revising some of the older versions. Translation is challenging and money intensive. More can be achieved if the needed funds are available.
BSG ensures the widest distribution of scriptures to every part of the country. Currently, we have seven main distribution points where our offices are located; Accra, Kumasi, Takoradi, Ho, Hohoe, Tamale and Sunyani. Additionally, there are over forty distributors spread across the country. BSG also distributes some of its Bibles for free during very special events, to 1st year students of the universities in Ghana in their Christian fellowships. Braille Bibles are also given out to the blind. Recently, the Bible Society presented over 5000 free copies of the English Standard Version Study Bibles to students in theological institutions across the country.
BSG is involved in projects that enable individuals and groups to interact with the Word of God continuously. They include the HIV/AIDS Good Samaritan project, Alpha, Peacekeeping, Tamale Rescue Project, Faith Comes by Hearing (FCBH), Literacy Project, Youth Impact projects, Open The Book project, Next Generation Project among others.
